Upland lambics are fermented by wild yeast and aged in oak casks for over a year, which creates a tart, complex beer. We then add whole kiwis, giving the beer enticing aromas and flavors. The beer is bottle conditioned, which adds a zesty and refreshing carbonation. Kiwi Lambic is the perfect drink to share with friends over a plate of good cheese and fresh fruit.

Fantastic. Dec 2010 bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with small white head and nice carbonation. Very tart, with huge lemon, kiwi, and lime...huge citrus in this regard. A nice finish of hay and funk. Very good. Upland makes some amazing stuff.

15/VIII/15 - 75cl bottle @ We’re drinking all of Rich’s American beers tasting - BB: n/a (2015-1066) Thanks to omgrich for sharing the bottle!

Pretty cloudy yellow beer, no head. Aroma: bit fruity, sour, US brett, meaty, like a pork roast with rosemary or something. Weirdest stuff in a long time. MF: lots of carbon, medium to light body. Taste: very sour, acidic, very aggressive, spicy and very herbal, rosemary or thyme or something, very weird. Aftertaste: maybe some kiwi, but that might be the power of suggestion. Very sour, acidic, pretty bad...

Really good smelling kiwi and peachy aroma. Poured with nice carbonation to bring out kiwi. Refreshing and kinda funky.

draft sampler at Fest of Ales. poured a clear yellow, no head no lacing just a pure funk, acidic fruity nose. it smelled like it was going to be overly sour and it was almost true. yes is was sour and yes it was funky and delicious. nice fruity flavor of the kiwi and i want to say maybe some apple in there. but you dont really want this warm changes the whole complexion. tart bitter acidic fruity flavors with little brett. solid offering from upland.

Smells great. But also smells like it’s going to be sour as fuck. And well it is. Super sour. Kiwi, Grammy smith apples. I was told this is the sourest beer ever, not sure I would go that far, the upland raspberry is more sour and acidic. But it’s up there.

Shared with the crew @ Brickstore. Been waiting to try something from this series for a while. Wow was this sour as hell. One of the most sour beers I have had in a long time. Nose showed some major musty funk with delicate fruit component. Taste is where the pow comes in. Super acidic, with light kiwi, lemon. LIvely carbonation causes the sour to ride a long time after each pull.

Bottle shared with the crew. Holy smokes this is some acidic throat burning sort of liquid. It is intense but I like it. Big on the tart scale, fruit comes in to try to balance it out and works well, kiwi is a nice fruit to use here. After the throat burn you are still left with more kiwi flavors. It is able to last throughout.

Bottle. Cloudy golden yellow pour, with a thin head. Very sour, mild kiwi, lemon, acidic, a bit fruity, and white vinegar. Very sour, difficult to drink.
